Growing Knowledge – views please

Growing Knowledge: The Evolution of Research

My colleague, Pete Williams, at UCL, is evaluating this British Library exhibition, which runs between 12 October 2010 – 16 July 2011. Please go along and support the future of research!

The Growing Knowledge exhibition will demonstrate the vision for future digital research services at the British Library, and provide a test bed for the evaluation of digital research tools and services that have the potential to support researchers’ needs. The exhibition will consist of a number of features including digital signage, video demonstrations, interactive welcome animations and a prototype “Researcher’s Desktop” application.

We at University College London are evaluating the exhibition, and would like to invite you to visit it and to give us your views. Your visit will allow you to sample each of these components. A researcher will be at the exhibition, and we hope that you will be able to talk to him briefly to tell him what you think of the exhibition.

The programme for each event will be as follows:

11.00: One of the curators will give an introductory talk about the exhibition
11.15: There will be an opportunity for you to explore the exhibition and try out the digital facilities. Our researcher may wish to talk to you about your views on the various exhibits.
12.30: Event closes.

A link to a short questionnaire will be sent to you very soon about your views on the exhibition and the issues raised.
